After six days of action in the Main Event, only 27 players remain. Aram Zobian is the chip leader with 41.5M. 2009 Champ Joe Cada is still alive, but with a short stack. Benjamin Pollak, who finished in third place last year, had a quest to make back-to-back final tables. But his remarkable journey ended when he busted in 42nd place. Kelly Minkin, the last woman standing, busted in 50th place.

And then there were 26. Day 6 of the 2018 WSOP Main Event saw the field get trimmed from 109 to 26. And yes, the lights stayed on the entire time. 2009 WSOP Main Event Champion, Joe Cada, is still alive. He's the only former champ still left in the hunt for the world championship. Cada won his third bracelet earlier this summer, but could he make a second WSOP Main Event final table?

Midway thru Day 6, Kelly Minkin busted and the last woman standing finished in 50th place. The lawyer from Arizona attracted the largest crowd at the Rio. She was short most of Day 6 and was unable to get anything going. This now makes two deep runs for Minkin in the Main Event since 2015.

Meanwhile, French pro Benjamin Pollak tried to make back-to-back Main Event final tables. Pollak finished in third place last year and he missed out on advancing to the final nine. Pollak busted in the early evening on Day 6 when he was piced off in 42nd place.

Meanwhile, Aram Zobian bagged up the lead with 41.5M. Rounding out the Top 5 are Artem Metalidi, Antoine Labat, Michael Dyer, and Alex Lynskey.

Event #65 $10,000 Main Event Championship - Day 6 Results

2009 Main Event Champion Joe Cada was the sole ex-champ still alive at the start of Day 6. He was among the final 109 who bagged up chips in the dark after an unexpected power outage ended Day 5 prematurely.

When Day 6 ended, Joe Cada bagged up chips once again. He finished 19/26 and is somewhat shortstacked with 8.8M. The Champ from Michigan knows the primarly goal every day in the Main Event -- get to the end of the night and stay alive to fight another day.

The final 109 players started Day 6. With the lights on! Yes, the power was in full swing during one of the longest days on the docket. They were scheduled to play down to 27 players, or approximately Level 31. No one knew if the power outage would affect the length Day 6.

More than half of the field busted before dinner break. Shaun Deeb was one of the first players to bust on Day 6 when he got waffle crushed in 105th place.

Kelly Minkin started Day 6 with a short stack and the distinction of being the last woman standing in a sea of franks and beans. Minkin staved off elimination for the first half of the day including a crazy hand when she beat down Big Slick with Mrs. Slick, much to the delight of her boisterous rail, which included friends and family from Arizona.

Minkin's magical run finally came to an end when she busted in 50th place. Denmark's Frederik Jensen sent her to the rail.

At the 2015 WSOP, Minkin finished in 29th place, which paid out $211K. This year, Minkin won $156,265 for 50th place. Minkin walked away with $367K for two deep Main Event excursions in the last four years. Pretty impressive. Not too shabby for a lawyer, eh? Most of the time I'd say, DON'T QUIT YOUR DAY JOB. But in Minkin's case, she has a valid point.

What's up with lawyers and poker? Vanessa Selbst, Cate Hall, Kelly Minkin. Heck even Fossilman was an attorney before he got super famous and won the 2004 WSOP Main Event.

Speaking of multiple deep runs in the Main Event... Benjamin Pollak's own run ended in 42nd place. The French pro attempted to pull a Newhizzle with back-to-back appearances at the final table. Alas, Pollak's sensational run came to a smashing halt. Pollak banked $189,165. This marked a third deep run for Pollak over the last six years. Pollak went deep at the 2013 Main Event with a 27th place finish. Last year, Pollak finished in third place, while he was a runner-up at a WSOP Europe event in RozVegas.

Antoine Labat seized the lead before dinner when he won a three-way cooler. Labat's pocket Aces held up against K-K and Q-Q. Although Labat coughed up the lead, he still hung around the front of the pack. Labat ended the night third overall. Fellow Frenchman Sylvian Loosli is still alive as well.

Aram Zobian is the chip leader with a big stack worth 41.5M. So, who's still alive on the final three tables?? Artem Metalidi, Antoine Labat, Michael Dyer, Alex Lynskey, Yueqi Zhu, Kao Saechao, Martijn Gerrits, Nicolas Manion, Eric Froehlich, Paulo Goncalves, Tony Miles, John Cynn, Alexander Haro,Hari Bercovici, Frederik Jensen, Sylvain Loosli, Ryan Phan, Joe Cada, Ivan Luca, Konstantin Beylin, Ming Xi, Jeff Trudeau, Nirath Rean, Bart Lybaert, and short-stacked Barry Hutter.

Notables who busted on Day 6 included... Clayton Fletcher (28th), Peter Campo (33rd), Jason Gooch (36th), Shannon Shorr (39th), Brian Yoon (41st), Benjamin Pollak (42nd), James Obst (46th), Kelly Minkin (50th), Jamie Kaplan (62nd), Stefan Huber (76th), Paulino Uemura (77th), Jack Duong (86th), Alex Gross (87th), Phil Chun (91st), Alexandre Reard (92nd), and Shaun Deeb (105th).
